Provided by By Betty Crocker Kitchens

Categories     Dessert

Time 2h20m

Yield 30

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
2 tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 teaspoons milk
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
5 to 6 teaspoons milk
3 tablespoons sliced almonds

Steps:

  • Heat oven to 375°F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper; spray with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix cookie mix, softened butter, egg, flour and 1 teaspoon almond extract until dough forms.
  • Divide dough into 3 pieces. Place 2 dough pieces on first cookie sheet. Press each piece into 12x2 1/2-inch rectangle, leaving 4 inches between rectangles. Place remaining piece of dough on second cookie sheet, and repeat shaping.
  • Brush each rectangle with 1/2 teaspoon milk; sprinkle with 1/4 cup almonds. Press almonds lightly into tops of dough.
  • Bake one cookie sheet at a time 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown (center will look soft). Cool 1 minute. Using sharp knife, cut each log into 1-inch diagonal slices, making sure to cut completely through almond slices while cutting. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack, leaving slices on parchment paper. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • In small bowl, stir powdered sugar, 1/4 teaspoon almond extract and 5 to 6 teaspoons milk until desired consistency. Drizzle over cookies; sprinkle 3 tablespoons almonds over tops. Let stand about 1 hour or until glaze is set. Store loosely covered at room temperature up to 2 days.

SWEDISH GROUND ALMOND SPRITZ COOKIES

Provided by AKBELL

Categories     World Cuisine Recipes     European     Scandinavian

Time 1h20m

Yield 48

Number Of Ingredients 9

¾ cup blanched slivered almonds
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
⅛ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread the almonds out on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned or until they give off an aroma. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool completely. Grind to a consistency resembling rough sand in a food processor or blender. Be sure almonds are cool, or you will make almond butter.
  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the almond extract and milk. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt, and mix in along with the ground toasted almonds to form a soft dough. Refrigerate the dough for 15 to 20 minutes. This will help the cookies keep their shape after pressing.
  • Lightly grease cookie sheets, and fill cookie press with dough. Press out cookies at least 1 inch apart depending on the size. You can experiment with different cookie designs. I've found most true Swedes tend to use the star shape, however, you're free to use whatever shape suits your fancy.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on the cookie sheets for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
